I understand that we all have different likes/dislikes dog wise aesthetically. I get that and I don't think I'm too sensitive about it, that said I received a anonymous message on tumblr that was just really judgmental about Merlin and his structure and looks and coat and I hate how much it stung to read the person didn't even sound angry, just informing me that my dog is all wrong and why. I just hate that with the amount of love I have for him and the amount of people that compliment him, this got me as much as it did. I know nothing about structure or coat I just never saw him as anything less than perfect and never hesitated to post pictures of him and now I just feel weird about it. I still think he's perfect but it's weird thinking there are people seeing pictures of him just being happy and making such harsh judgments.

Oh, and my boss is like "I DON'T CARE IF YOU'RE DEPRESSED! You need to shove it all to the side and ignore it. I ignore MY home life issues, you should be able to do the same."

I CAN'T IGNORE A MEDICAL CONDITION, YOU IMPOTENT, RAGING, PATHETIC, MOTHER****ING MORON. THAT'S LIKE TELLING ME TO IGNORE MY BLOOD PRESSURE PROBLEMS OR MY BROKEN LEG.

It's not like my dog peeing on the rug or getting into an argument with my roommate. It's a constant wish to either be in bed, asleep, so I don't have to feel anything again or to be dead. It's an inability to smile or relate to people.

I'm just. . . frustrated. I realize there are ups and downs and this will go away, but I need some sort of support and the only place I get it is from my friend who is also manic-depressive, but thinks you don't need medication, you just need to "suck it up" and you can "handle it" on your own. Even though when he was on meds he did ten times better, no, clearly the meds weren't helping.

For ****'s sake. I just want to scream and yell a bit and go back to bed.
Huge huggles. Do you still have my #? Don't hesitate to call it. I understand.

People are dicks, unless you were in a show ring where you pay someone to judge him then this one persons opinion is worthless. Post more Merlin pics, I love seeing him

People can be such douches.

I posted a picture here once of Corvus, and it was snagged by someone, uploaded to Icanhascheeseburger.com and made into a million different memes. Many were not nice, and referred to him as ugly, among other things. Even people I know in person tell me how ugly he is. It pisses me off, sure, but hey...in the end, *I* love my dog and *I* think he's the most handsome creature on the planet, so screw 'em. Me personally, I think the only thing ugly about Corvus is the sheer number of assholes he attracts who feel compelled to comment negatively on his looks. People who, without being asked for their opinion, think it's okay to tell someone their furry little sidekick isn't their idea of perfect have no tact and aren't worth the energy. Don't let it get to you. Merlin is fluffy cuteness, and probably has more friends than some bitter old tumblr hag.

This. In addition, if they were so confident of their opinion, they wouldn't have sent an anonymous message. Merlin is awesome and ever so handsome

Maybe its not a medical condition, but rather one of the heart? Please, please please do not misunderstand me Nolu. But from the little I know about you from what you share here..... I cannot help but wonder. Perhaps you will not care, but we will be praying for you.
